Join me as Look at the classic song, “Enjoy the Silence. I juxtapose Depeche Mode’s original version to covers by Tori Amos, Lacuna Coil, Anberlin, and Nada Surf.
Cover vs Original
What is Cover vs Original? A section which compares and contrasts the different covers of a song to the original version. We dare to ask…which version is better and why? Sometimes the original blows the cover out of the water. Sometimes a cover shows the original what the song could have, and even should have, been. At the end of the day…cover vs original is great and glorious fun.
Some songs already made in Cover vs Original include God Gave Rock and Roll to You, Don’t Stop Believin’, Smells Like Teen Spirit, Ghost Riders in the Sky, Somebody to Love, and more!
This section of audioperfecta.com, at the very least gives you a place to find new and interesting versions of a song you already know and love. For example, a dance version of Somebody to Love. We have also featured a Klingon version of Don’t Stop Beleivin’. And who can forget when we contrasted the Gwar version of Carry On, Wayward Son with a Christian Rock version? Of course, the queen of covers, Tori Amos, and the king of covers, Johnny Cash, make regular appearances…or rather their songs do.
Cover Vs Original gives an in depth look at what makes a song tick too….so its not all surface. We fully look for patterns in vocals, instrumentation, lyrics, key progressions, tempo, and everything else….all to find what makes the song…well…the song.
A new Cover vs comes out at least once a month. So keep checking back, and be sure to request your favorite songs as we are always open to suggestions.

Patti Smith happened to be recording next door, and got a copy of the song, tweaked a few things, recorded …
Paint It, Black originally released in 1966 is perhaps one of the saddest songs ever written by Keith Richards and Mick Jagger. Heck – Paint It, Black might be the bleakest rock and roll song ever written. Paint It, Black uses a colorless world as a metaphor for sadness, even depression. With imagery such as …
AudioPerfecta.com’s unofficial anthem is God Gave Rock and Roll to You. It’s unofficial only because while I love Rock and Roll, this website is not specific to just one genre. I am committed to going beyond Rock, into Classical, Rap, World Beat, Country, or whatever else inspires me. However, I do believe that God did, …
